Until recently the idea of a stylus was a non starter for me, but my most comfortable way to use the phone is with the side of my second (longest) finger......and I make a lot of typos.

Recently I got a case which came with a free stylus and I find it is a huge improvement, but it is not as sensitive as my finger, though much more accurate. I have a Bamboo stylus I got a while back which is more sensitive but not quite like a finger.

Any advice about the best stylus for an iPhone 7+ (no screen protector BTW)?

Thanks

It is as precise as your finger, but with better control.
That could be a problem....I need it to be a lot better than my 15mm thick finger ;)

However the stylii I have tried are both less sensitive than my finger. i.e. the screen responds to the lightest touch of my finger, but the stylus needs a bit more.

Maybe I should have compared it to my pinky then. Hehe! One of the things I like about this stylus is how sensitive it is.

I have the adonit pixel. I bought it to use with my iPad Air 2 but it also works with my iPhone 7 plus.

Well,in north Europe,we got something called "bullens pilsnerkorv",they are bought in bundles,and packed in water in metal cans. Works ok as stylus,but a bit messy. The best part is that they are cheap,and can be used as food.
